Sports bars ready to go
Until sports bars and restaurants started hosting live music events, concertgoers would have to wait for a major stage show to witness their favourite local artistes in action.
But with the birth of events such as Tracks Live Sessions and 100 Live, spots such as Usain Bolt’s Tracks & Records (UBTR) and 100 became entertainment hubs.
However, with COVID19 continuing to cripple the entertainment industry, the sweet musical sounds that used to breathe life into these hotspots have been silenced.
Today, like many others in the entertainment industry, managers of these spots are eager to get back into the swing of things.
Speaking with THE WEEKEND STAR, Sudu Ramani, chief financial officer at 100, said that his team is looking forward to resuming normal operations at the Hope Road spot in the ‘new normal’.
“Social distancing, clearly, will change the face of entertainment going forward. While practice of sanitation and other precautions will be an added part of daily life, social distancing is sure to change a person’s perception of entertainment. We have therefore changed the formats of several of our events to allow for social distancing without affecting the entertainment experience of
